This is one of, if not the best, producer of Gigondas, but they also make great Chateauneuf. It is a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 15% Syrah, and 5% Cinsault. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose has prunes, cherries, garrigue and slight floral notes. Medium bodied. Young but nice complexity. Tight layers or plums, spice and earth. Lively. Nice finish. This needs a couple more years until peak but should drink well for the next twelve to fifteen years.
